Teijin Aramid announced that it will launch a new higher performing lightweight aramid yarn, Twaron 550f1000. This new yarn is the finest filament based on aramid in the world and provides better ballistic protection in body armor for police, soldiers and law enforcement officers. The new Twaron 550f1000 has the highest tenacity in combination with breaking strength in Teijin Aramid's portfolio. Teijin Aramid has the broadest para-aramid portfolio in the world.

The new Twaron 550f1000 consists of 1000 filaments which means that it has significantly higher performance than other yarns. The new yarn will be mainly used in soft anti-ballistic products for the police, law enforcement and military markets where the current trends are towards lightweight and comfortable bulletproof vests that comply with strict safety regulations.

In a woven fabric the yarn could be used for anti-ballistic and anti-stab products. It has an excellent fragment resistance, it improves the resistance in exposure to the blast effects of roadside bombs and it provides better bullet protection.

For the development of this yarn, Teijin Aramid invested millions of euros and resources to come up with such a high performing lightweight anti-ballistic product. Karl Henke, Business Manager Ballistic at Teijin Aramid says: “This new yarn is our response to the demand for lightweight ballistic protection, which itself is the result of the increasing threat of violence in society. Police officers, soldiers and even private citizens who require protection will start wearing a bulletproof vest earlier when the weight and comfort is even better than nowadays.”

The Shooting, Hunting, Outdoor Trade Show (SHOT Show) and Conference is the largest trade show for professionals involved with the shooting sports, hunting and law enforcement industries. Teijin Aramid produces aramid fibers and delivers the newest and latest technologies in anti-ballistic protection for soldiers and policemen. This new product will be shown at Teijin Aramid's stand number 6203 in the Casanova Room at the SHOT Show.

Teijin Aramid is a subsidiary of the Teijin Group and world leader in aramids. Its products Twaron, Sulfron, Teijinconex and Technora are renowned for their strength, sustainability, safety, heat resistance and low weight and is used in different applications and markets including automotive, ballistic protection, marine, civil engineering, protective clothing, fiber optic cables and oil & gas.
